Wondering what we are all about? Well, grab yourself a nice glass of sweet tea and let’s chat…
Tell me… Have you ever spent hours on Pinterest searching for inspiration only to end up with lost time and hundreds of more pins?
Do you long for fresh ideas, practical solutions, and a simple, happy home where you can relax and feel organized?
Do you feel overwhelmed and not sure where to even begin? Maybe you don’t think you have the “eye” for it or don’t think you’re creative enough for all this.
Welcome to Creatively Southern, your destination for inspiration, how-to, and practical solutions to transform your home and your life.
I believe in seeing the positives in all things, especially when it comes to creating your home. Life should be simple, and your home should be a haven – a welcoming place for family and friends.
Your home can be beautiful without spending a fortune or having designer skills. We can re-purpose and reclaim just about anything and give it meaning. Each of us is creative in so many ways, we need only to tap into what feels right. If you’re ready to transform your home and your life with practical solutions, better tutorials, and encouragement to carry you through it, you’re in the right place my friend!
Imagine creating your home in your own style that speaks to you and your family, rather than trying to fit into someone else’s design.
What if you could learn a new skill, start a new hobby, get advice from real people that have faced the same challenges as you… maybe we are still trying to get there. (wherever “there” is!)
Stop killing precious time and start transforming your home and life now!
When you join Creatively Southern, you get detailed guidance and encouragement to create spaces and solutions that change your life and home for the better.
Our home is nothing big or fancy but it is ours, and we work hard for it. I want it to be a haven for my family, welcoming to guests, and organized for our busy lives. I’ve spent countless hours pinning images, dog-eared dozens of magazines, and still felt like it was never “all together” or cohesive. So many of the things I thought I liked, were not really MY style. They were someone else’s. And all the lovely things I did LOVE, we just couldn’t afford.
I decided to set aside my fear of getting it wrong and stop living by the rules of trendy designs. I searched for meaning in the things we already had… things that could be re-purposed. If we can actually recreate some of the things that inspire us, we can have a beautiful home. If we can make it work better for the way we live, life will be simpler, and not to mention the money we can save!
I’ve made plenty of mistakes. I’ve stumbled along with hot glued fingers and mismatched paint. But I’ve never gave up, and I’ve learned to appreciate the imperfections.
YOU can skip the learning curve and transform your home, simplify life, and give love and encouragement back to your family.
We believe family is everything and our home is at the core of everything we do. We can help you make life a little simpler and create a space you long to come home to for you, for your family and friends.
We love hearing from you! Tell us about your next project or drop us a note in email to tell us how we can help you at email@example.com.
More About Who We Are:
I am Ellora, the founder and author of Creatively Southern in Knoxville, Tennessee. Home Decorating and Creative Design has always been a passion of mine, so one day I decided it was time to follow that passion. I started Creatively Southern in 2012 as a place to keep up with my projects and to write about life’s adventures with my little girl. Along the way, I decided I not only wanted share our stories, but also wanted to inspire others to find their passion and unlock their creative potential.
We also wanted to be able to share some amazing items for your home that we love to give function and personal style to your creative spaces. That’s when we launched the online shop. Our goal is to provide you with high quality items at affordable prices that will allow you to use your creativity and transform your home into a style all your own.
Britt is my creative assistant, builder, #1 encourager, supporter, and my rock. Together, we bring you inspiration to transform your home through creative DIY tutorials, money saving ideas, and inspiration for new projects.
